MISCELLANEOUS 2

Dams, drays, hooks, batteries, tree stumps, whatever........these images are of all sorts of bit and pieces found in and around the Woodlines.



The remains of one of the many tipping drays abandoned on the southern end of the Lakewood line when the LFC ceased using horses and drays to cart the wood from the cutting areas to the railway line in about 1952.

The tipping body of this dray is almost complete.



There are at least four drays in this particular spot. I have found the remains of at least 30 drays, all within about a ten kilometres radius of the 102 mile Main Camp on the Lakewood line.




Not many of the wheels still have their hubs.



This wheel not only has it's hub still but it has most of it's spokes.



This is part of the rock wall built to divert water into the largest of the three dams built at Cave Hill on the Kurrawang line. If there was a very heavy thunderstorm, it was the railway gangers job to knock out a section of the wall so that the water could escape and not wash away the dam wall.



The largest of the three dams at Cave Hill. The dam wall is made of rocks, earth and corrugated iron and is hidden under the trees. The water in these dams is still crystal clear and quite safe to drink.



This dam is at Ten Mile Rocks, about 14 kilometres south east of Burra Rock on the Kurrawang line. I am not certain whether it was a woodline dam although I suspect it was. It means I will have to go on another trip out there to investigate. Oh dear, what a shame!
